The positive ANA can be significant depending on the titre, if it's 1:320 or higher then it is much more likely to be due to autoimmune disease.

The ESR and CRP being elevated is a general indication that you have inflammation, but does not really offer any clue as to why. These are often raised in active SLE, but can be raised for many other reasons. This is why the rheumatologist is running additional tests before making any sort of diagnosis.

But it looks like you're on your way to a diagnosis or some sort, and hopefully some helpful treatment very soon. When is your follow up appointment?
